Book Series: Ruby and the Booker Boys
Author: Derrick Barnes
Ruby and the Booker Boys, one of Derrick Barnes’ most successful preteen series captures the essence of just being a kid in a community. A place where everyone acts like family regardless of their family tree. Children of all ages, and yes I’m included, are immediately captivated by her play on words and witty way of outsmarting anyone that stands in her way. It’s easy for any reader to forget that Ruby is this pretty, brown-skinned trendsetter, because you literally take on her role and become the queen of the scene!
